    First time coming here at MGBV on a Saturday(Mother's Day weekend). I was contacted about 5 to 6 times confirming my reservation at 11:15 AM, May 11th. I received an email, 3 text messages and 1 missed call. Anyway, servers are super friendly and accommodating. However, I was turned off that they upped the prices because it was mother's day weekend and included a mandatory service charge.

    This is a delightful hidden gem in Pasadena for high tea, beautiful pastries, amazing champagne brunch and anyone wishing to spend a leisurely afternoon in a New Orleans inspired space that is abundantly adorned, peaceful and a totally unique and delicious experience. Highly recommended!

    We didn't like the food. They switched the menu on us and had very high special event prices. Imposed a mandatory 25% tip even though the service was slow. Nice ambiance and very pretty restaurant.

    At the Valentine's Day pris fixe the food was overpriced, mediocre, and misleading. The Bouiabesse and risotto was neither Bouiabesse nor risotto but rather overcooked and dry fish and red rice porridge. The choice of soup or salad 2nd course was no choice, just salad. Tea on the desert menu ran an extra $18. There was an automatic 25% service charge, though we were only two persons.

    I’ve been here a total of three times now. The first two times were magical. This last time was a bit of a baffling nightmare. Came here to celebrate my mom’s bday along with my niece. I’m vegan and all three of us are lactose intolerant. It takes a long time for our server to come to our table, but once she does, I explain that we would like everything vegan. We order tea with oat milk. We receive tea with no milk. We wait. Our tea gets cold. Eventually we received milk… dairy milk. Not knowing, we drank it. After a few big sips, I suspected something was off. I tasted the milk by itself, and it was definitely dairy milk. I made sure to reiterate to our server and another server who was helping her that we are a vegan table. Only vegan items would be appreciated. Please note, they offer vegan options on the menu. Dairy butter also came in our jam ramekin for our scones. Luckily I knew this butter was not vegan since I had visited this restaurant a week earlier and had a much better experience. Otherwise, we would have eaten the butter too. Please also note, after each suspicion I had, I would ask the server what the item was, and they would confirm with a straight face (no, that’s regular butter/milk). I was baffled since I had quite literally spelled out for them that we don’t want any animal product items. Since they offer vegan substitutes, I don’t see why this is an issue. She returns with a ramekin of just jam, but you can see that the butter was simply scraped out since there was still butter remnants in the jam. I asked her to please bring us a new one. Now I’m starting to feel like the problem, then I quickly correct myself because I most certainly do not have this issue every time. Also, if my dietary restriction were an allergy, they’d be in big trouble. Not my fault. We eat our dry scones, drink out cold tea, and eventually eat our (hopefully) vegan tiers. Then they bring a bday dessert for my mom… dairy CHEESECAKE! They applied a vegan upcharge

    The ambience and staff were very pleasant, welcoming and professional. The staff catered to our needs and the music was enchanting. They provided the perfect scenario for the occasion that was celebrated.

    Beautiful atmosphere, delicious food, very different from other tea places that I have experienced. Good service. Recommend this place for birthdays, showers, and Christmas afternoon tea.
